28.5” DL, 65# mods pulling at 67# DW. I’ve been through the Zebra string frustration in the past. So I shot 100 arrows and added 2 twist to lower cable to get perfect timing then I installed peep, nose button, and D loop. String seams to be pretty well settled on at this point, time will tell.
Out of town at the moment and no pics of final product.

Not much to compare it to and can’t speak much on longevity or durability. But it seems to work really well. Shafts have required minimal squaring.

I’m only getting 262 FPS. However, this thing is an absolute laser. Accuracy takes precedence over speed for my needs. It also seems to be quite a bit more forgiving than my V3 31. So far I can say that I am VERY happy with my purchase and time invested in this project.

Rest vertical set at 0 and slight adjustment of D loop got me to bullet holes. I did have slight nock low with initial nocking point using level.
I will say that I have never gone through the the bare shaft tuning to this extent. I also have struggled to get acceptable accuracy from fixed blade broadheads in the past. Not the case with this set up. I have shot fixed blades with exact POI as my field points without any needed adjustment out of this bow. Very rewarding and confidence inspiring. As soon as I’m done nock tuning the rest of these arrows and get them built I will be starting the process over with my V3.

I can agree with that. I wasted a lot of time working with a bubble level for “perfection” just to have to change my nocking point on this set up. I wouldn’t put too much time into paper tuning until initial set up is complete and the individual becomes familiar with shooting their new bow. A bullet hole at this point can lead to false confidence. But once the arrow selection process starts I personally want to know my arrows are tuned to my personal set up. Otherwise it could become a tail chasing downward spiral. Or at least that’s been my experience in the past. While hunting I much prefer pass throughs and want to do everything within my power to achieve this.

As a bow tech, which I am not, and you are. I think you have the right approach to get your customers happy and headed in the right direction. It’s on them to do the fine tuning if they want to get into that kind of detail. But will more than likely be deadly accurate and happy if they choose to shoot their new bow as you have set it up for them.

Question, in your experience if a bow is broadhead tuned to 40 yards and they want to go longer does it usually require much more tuning to achieve longer distances?

Well, I got her all set up. I have a GAS ghost white string and cable set to install but the Zebra is actually doing great at the moment. She is shooting so well I’m going to leave it and enjoy it how it is for a while. Planning on ditching the cable clamp for the rest when I install new string and cable.

The UV3 landslide combo, 33 ATA and 6.5” brace height all come together to make this what I would consider an excellent crossover bow. Here are some pics
